About Us

Spirit of HPU Panther Marching Band

In August 2020, High Point University brought back their marching band! The High Point University Marching Panthers, The Spirit of HPU, began entertaining audiences in the spring of 2021, and we want YOU to be a member! We are a proud band family striving for excellence while building a strong community and having FUN. In support of this new musical ensemble, we are offering $12,000 scholarships (spread over four (4) years) to incoming freshmen! Whether you've been in a marching band or not, we have a place for you in our band family.

Who is in the HPU Marching band?

Our band is comprised of 97% non-music majors. These talented students accept the challenge to support our athletic teams, promote spirit across campus, and have a LOT of fun with other amazing students. In addition, every year, nearly 80% or more of our band members are recognized as Millis Scholar Athletes. We have nearly twenty (20) different degree programs represented in our band. If you are struggling in a course, we likely have students who have taken the course and can advise/tutor you on how to be successful. The Marching Panthers is open to all students. (Our current rehearsal schedule is: Sunday 3:00-6:00, and Thursdays 6:30-8:30 pm)
